Liverpool FC have entered the race to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa this summer as they look to beat Tottenham to his signature, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Reds are keen to try and bring the 22-year-old midfielder to Anfield this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.

Grealish’s future has been a source of speculation this summer after Aston Villa failed to gain promotion to the Premier League, and Tottenham are among the clubs to have been linked with the midfielder.

According to the same story, Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has made Grealish his number one target this summer, but there could be issues in agreeing a fee with Villa.

The same report says that Liverpool FC have now registered their interest in signing Grealish this summer, which could change the complexion of the situation.

Liverpool FC are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Klopp looks to assemble a team capable of winning the Premier League title next term.

The Reds finished in fourth place last season and reached the Champions League final, but they are still waiting to win their first trophy under their German manager.
